Dry Rub

  • In a small bowl mix together all the seasonings for the rub. Mix well.
  • Pat the pork roast dry using paper towels.
  • Coat the pork roast with the rub. Wrap the roast in plastic wrap and place in fridge for 12 – 24 hours.

Pulled Pork

  • Preheat the oven to 300 degrees F.
  • In a large pot heat the oil until it begins to smoke, then add the onions. Allow the onions to cook for 2-3 minutes.
  • Very carefully place the pork in the pot and sear the roast on all sides (3-5 minutes per side). Be very careful during this process so that the hot oil doesn't burn you.
  • Remove the pan from heat and add the beer to the pan.
  • Cover and cook for 2 to 3 hours. Check the pork at about the 90 minutes mark to see if it needs more liquid.
  • Remove from oven, allow to cool until safe to handle.
  • Shred the pork with two forks. Add your favorite barbecue sauce to coat the shredded pork and toss to coat the pork.
  • Serve as shredded pork for tacos, sandwiches and other recipes using pulled pork.
